Two Arrested For Attempted Armed Robbery Of Pizza Hut

Police in Washington say they have arrested two men with attempted armed robbery and conspiracy, and tell WITN News they are looking at whether this is connected to other recent robberies.

Multiple fast food restaurants have been robbed since Christmas in both Beaufort and Pitt counties.

Court records say the two tried to rob the night deposit bag from the Pizza Hut on West 15th Street. The warrants say the manager was threatened with a knife.

A police news release says around 10:30 p.m. they arrested Kevin Brown of New Bern and Michael Stocks of Washington. Both were charged with attempted armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery, while Stocks was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

The two were arrested on the scene as officers spotted suspected criminal activity. “We are aware of activity in many jurisdictions of similar nature," said Lt. William Chrismon. The lieutenant added they are now working with police in Greenville, Farmville and Williamston on these case.

Brown and Stocks were jailed on $25,000 bonds.

    One way to prevent armed robbery in a business would be to have a large sign posted outside that business that offers a 10% discount to every customer who presents a concealed handgun permit at the time of purchase!

    No, they aren't the ones who are holding up the restaurants in Greenville. I've been held up twice and as much as I hate to use the generic description of "3 black males" its true. Stupid thugs. I believe they live in Cherry Court because both times I was held up, they ran out the door towards that neighborhood. Hint hint Greenville Police Department. Told you that BOTH times.

      We all know where the majority of the thugs live in Greenville. What angers me is that they will set up a roadblock targeting ECU students, yet they will not set up a roadblock by the main entrance to these apartment neighborhoods. If they stopped every person walking or driving out of Cherry Court and Sterling Point for two straight days, they would have the jails full
